We deal with scientific research and description of strength of materials and structures, from the nano to the macro scale. The fields of research include:

  • EAM - the potential parametrisation method,
  • study of interfaces in composites,
  • limit state criteria,
  • design criteria for bearing elements in mining,
  • models predicting fatigue crack growth,
  • fatigue in riveted joints in aircraft constructions.

The detailed description of the works carried out in our Department can be found on the subsite Scientific activity.

We verify our theoretical investigations using modern equipment of own laboratories. The Department can conduct tests in the following areas:
